As one of the first veterans of the Lexus brand, ES has been baptized for 30 years and the seventh generation Lexus ES is still a teenager. The style is graceful and graceful, and it is rare that there is no appearance. The personality and the low-key introversion are fully made known, Lexus deeply understands the desire of the Orientals to show their individuality, while returning to a calm mind, such as the new LS of the big brother, the new ES is largely based on the oriental aesthetics, the east People build. The seventh generation Lexus ES was officially launched on July 26 and the new car cost 27.9-46.8 million yuan.
Compared with many German or American models, Lexus ES has nearly 30 years of model history Not too long. Unlike the big brother LS to create a brand image, the ES model takes on the sales task. The first generation ES, which debuted at the North American auto show of 1989, became a hit after the launch. The official introduction of the domestic market is the fifth generation ES. This generation ES is more stable and versatile than the previous generation and has a good corporate image. That is why this generation ES is used more for public business purposes in China: the sixth generation model We are more familiar with it, have been sold in China for years and the design aspect has essentially retained the Lexus family's design elements. The new ES we saw this time is the seventh generation, which is perhaps the most sporty model in the ES. So let's see how it moves.
Lexus new ES has a very rich power selection, ES 200 with 2.0 L naturally aspirated engine, matching 6AT gearbox. The ES 260 is powered by a 2.5-liter atmospheric engine that fits the 8AT gearbox. The ES300h is equipped with a matching THS-II hybrid system consisting of a 2.5 liter Atkinson engine with natural suction and electric motor, which is tuned to the E-CVT gearbox. The model we tested this time is the new Lexus ES 300h.
This 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine also has a thermal efficiency of 41%, which is also the most efficient engine in the global production model. Moreover, the compression ratio of this engine is 14: 1, but only 92 # petrol needs to be added, the official said that the power consumption of the powertrain is only 4.2L.
Through the planetary gears on the planet, the clutch plus the speed control motor to achieve the shift, this process is completely seamless. Because it is electronically controlled and has no losses such as a torque converter, the transmission efficiency of the transmission is very high. Working together with the Atkinson cycle engine can make the economy ideal.
The ES of the positioning of the luxury medium and the large car is based on this, and the COX damping rod is added to the front part of the front subframe and the rear part of the rear subframe, which can absorb the great experience of the vehicle. . The impact and energy of the frame distortion during extreme sports, in combination with the large amount of high-quality steel used in the body, make the stiffness and handling of the vehicle a qualitative improvement over the previous generation.
